Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Deep messages but very fun

I think it is a great fantasy movie for kids. My children are 3 and 6 and they both were riveted to the screen! They asked questions to clarify things they didn’t understand but it is a fun movie if somewhat complicated plot for them. Older kids will understand all the complexities better I think. It mentions God in one scene in a very spiritual moment which may need clarification based on your family’s personal beliefs. I am not easily offended so the monkey scene didn’t bother me too much but can also be explained to inquiring young minds much like any other name calling or negativity that occurs around our children is. The overall message is positive and reinforces strength of character and personal growth.
